Hello, hello! Monday again, and the start of another bright and shiny week – how did that happen? I’m still not quite ready to concede that Autumn/Fall is here – Indian Summer, anyone? – but I am thoroughly loving all the Autumnal designs I’m seeing cropping up. And of course, that includes all the beautiful Autumnal art beads that I have found to share with you this week.
Here is a sweet set from Tupper’s Perch:
Honestly, do beads get much cuter than these?
I adore the Klimt-esque colours in these lovely paper (yes, paper!) beads from Gillian McMurray:
I have a set of these and despite being formed from paper, they are amazingly sturdy and robust. Check out Gillian’s lovely shop!
I love finding a new-to-me bead artist, and Red Star Bead Artist is one. Just look at these sweet bird dagger beads:
From new to a staple in my work….a gorgeous acorn from Bo Hulley. I have one – which colour-combo is your favourite?
Kristen from Bead Swede Designs shared more of her beautiful enamel work – and I think these gorgeous rounds are my favourites so far!
What beautiful, saturated Fall-tones.
Continuing with the beautiful Autumn tones we move onto this fiery lampwork pair from Olga Glass Art. These beads seem to glow from within!
And last but not least, here’s a pair of earrings from yours truly! Featuring some of my teeny tiny handwoven beads in sweet Autumnal tones. I’m very fond of these!
